Do not become too concerned about what others may think of you. Be very concerned about what you think of yourself.
Too often, we care more about a stranger’s opinion of us than our own.
Your opinion of yourself begins on the inside with your character. What do you believe in, and are you willing to stand up for it despite what others may think or say?
It’s what my dad meant when he said, “Be true to yourself.”
This comes first, then the opinion of others.
